Thanksgiving Series – Moses and Miriam were thankful

This Sunday Discovery Point:  Thanksgiving Series – Moses and Miriam were thankful Today we began our Thanksgiving lessons by learning why Moses and Miriam were thankful to God and how we can follow their examples of thankfulness. Moses and Miriam showed thankfulness to God through songs, worship, and by playing musical instruments. And we can show our thankfulness in the same ways! Music is one of the most familiar ways we can express our thankfulness, and God is pleased when we sing and praise Him with thankful hearts. (Scriptures used: Exodus 15:1-21)

Special Old Testament Places - Babylon

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  Special Old Testament Places - Babylon Over the last several weeks we have learned how God used special places like Egypt and the Promised Land to fulfill promises to His people.
